    First post Yay for me! Okay, I'm getting a light pink housing package for my Blackberry Curve 8330 and think the silver keypad compliments it much better than my default black pad I have in my current red phone. I've found where to buy these with no problem though I can't find anywhere on the net to buy the buttons above the keypad in silver ... the green phone, blackberry button, back button and red off button. Does anyone know?! Is there a technical name for these buttons? I don't even know where to begin! Thanks!

    good luck and POST PICS!

    FYI, if you're going to do this, order an extra battery door latch. They are fragile and can break when removing from your old housing. Can't hurt to have an extra one around anyway for $3 while you're ordering parts.

    While you're at it, you might as well get one of these too........

    Thanks! I'm trying to recreate the look of the pink Verizon blackberry, but I can't find the silver keypad tray for my 8330, those others were for other models.

    Okay ... wait ... where the trackball should be on that one is square. This isnt for the bold is it and they have it mistitled? ... Let me do some research. Person has quite a bit of a low rating.

    the base of the trackball is sqare, and sits in the sqare hole. Yeah if he has a low rating then you might get a keyboard tray for a 8320 then.

    Yep, definitely not for the 8330, those frauds should get their membership revoked. The button shape is completely different from mine along with the square center. Jerks.

    Oh well, I'm thinking if I keep the black tray and get a silver keypad, the black on the left side of the pad will compliment the black tray just fine, and I'll get a black track ball with a pink trackball ring - should be a pretty cool look as the frame around the lens is black and not grey like the Verizon phone.

    have you tried taking your BB apart yet? The bottom chin piece is a major PITA! Once that's off, the 8330 is pretty much cake to take apart.

    I haven't. I just picked out everything I'm going to be ordering tonight, and when I get it all I'll then take it to someone to have it done because I'm absentminded and will ruin my phone.

    Off the topic of what we've been discussing, I just cleaned my standard stock trackball - very dull - doesn't light up a bright blueish color like I see in youtube videos. Ick.
